If evolution is truly a mindless bio-chemical process, I'm confused on how it would produce an organism with a motivation to stay alive. How does a chemical reaction produce a molecule that prefers one future outcome over another (life or death). How do you motivate a mindless molecule to actively pursue life. Why would it care. How could it care

Rewording the topic starter
Hello Tyler and welcome to EvC. Is your question basically asking how life came from non-life? As the topic originator, do you plan on making a case for a Supreme Intelligence behind the design, a flat-out apologetic of God (through Jesus Christ) as Creator of all seen and unseen? Or do you want to approach this topic scientifically in the hope that some of these questions can be rationally tackled without resorting to Faith?

Feel free to edit your topic and revise the wording in the direction you want to go, so I will know which forum to put you in should you get promoted.

EvC is a place of learning and discussion. There are many educated people that post here. Then you have a few flakes like me who are unabashed believers. But we can challenge you too, should you lean towards Faith & Belief.

Re: Rewording the topic starter
My question is partly probing the idea that scientific explanations bottom out at a certain point, particularly at this point. I don't know how much more I can say because I feel I worded the question in the most concise way possible. Ultimately I am making a case for intelligent design, but I am not explicitly going to express my aim to the reader, nor should the question indicate my belief,. I want the reader to question themselves while recognizing any gaps in their knowledge. To answer your question, yes, this topic is to be approached scientifically. As to where this topic belongs, I see no difference between the Biological Evolution forum, the Human Origins and Evolution, and the Intelligent Design forum.
